Golf: Lucas Glover beats Patrick Cantlie at St Jude’s

Memphis, Tenn. American Lucas Glover got a long three putt to stay alive in the fourth round of the FedEx St. Jude Championship on Sunday. He then scored his most important tackle in overtime to defeat compatriot Patrick Cantlay and win his second consecutive championship.

So Glover continues his amazing journey these past few weeks. The 43-year-old finished 112th in the FedEx Cup standings two weeks ago and was preparing for a vacation. Now he is guaranteed to make the FedEx Cup Finals and possibly be considered for the Ryder Cup.

Glover had a 20-foot football, another 30-foot bogey, and a final 12-foot bounty on the last six flags. He delivered a card of 69 (-1) to force extra time, while Cantlie played 64 (-6) to put himself ahead.

In fact, extra time ended with a shot by Cantlie that was inches from perfection. Instead, the ball bounced off the beach before falling into the water. Meanwhile, Glover found the 18th fairway and needed two pars.

Glover became the third player in his forties to win two PGA Tour titles in as many weeks after Kenny Perry (2003) and Vijay Singh, who won three times.

“When you’re fighting for something or playing well, you have to work hard. You never know when it’s going to go in your favor. And it turned pretty quickly for me.”, they released Glover.

Glover and Cantley claimed a total of 275 (-15). The Englishman Rory McIlroy (65) and Tommy Fleetwood (68) finished second with an additional stroke.

Before the final, the top 50 players in the rankings will meet next week in the BMW Championship. This tournament will establish the top 30 people who will participate in the Tour Championship.

Canadian Mackenzie Hughes made a devastating bogey on the 17th hole, eventually showing a card 69 (-1). He is thus the first player eliminated, at 51st in the FedEx Cup standings.

Four of his countrymen are still in the running. Nick Taylor (16) and Corey Connors (25) are in good shape for the final, while Adam Hadwin (37) and Adam Svensson (39) will have to excel in the BMW Championship to extend their season.
